Pfizer vaccine to be rolled out next month if approved by UK regulator

Gimme More

The NHS will be ready to start vaccinating people against coronavirus next month - if one is approved by regulators.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock, speaking at a Downing Street news conference, revealed the government has now taken the "first step" for authorising a COVID-19 vaccine in the UK.

Ministers have formally asked the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) to assess the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine for use in the UK.

The jab has demonstrated an efficacy rate of 95% in the companies' phase 3 clinical study.

"If a vaccine is approved it will, of course, be available across the UK from our NHS, free at the point of delivery according to need and not ability to pay."

Mr Hancock said, if the MHRA approves a vaccine, "we will be ready to start the vaccination next month, with the bulk of the roll-out in the New Year".

He added: "We're heading in the right direction, but there's still a long way to go - coronavirus remains a grave danger right now."

The news conference came as it was announced that a further 511 people had died after testing positive for COVID-19, with a further 20,252 confirmed coronavirus cases in the UK.

I really hope this is it! No major side effects, no crazy mutations, just cure and immunity.

These vaccines will be free because they will likely cause illnesses later in life that will need to be treated with the companies drugs.

We have a universal healthcare system here in the UK, so most stuff is usually free..

I'm still disgusted you have to pay for healthcare in the US :madge:

I think they’ll be free in any country with a decent public healthcare system. I mean, it’s inconceivable to have to pay for a damn vaccine. Idk how Americans tolerate that.
